SYDNEY, Australia – November 14, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Australia, today released details about its brand-new devices running Windows 8 platform for Smart PCs, ATIV SMART PC and ATIV SMART PC Pro. Enhanced with Samsung’s own unique services and content, Samsung and Microsoft’s latest offerings provide users with advanced, productive and creative IT computing solutions.

“Samsung’s Windows 8 products are positioned to deliver the next evolution of computing to consumers. The new Windows 8 products are coupled with Samsung’s exclusive application suite, which have been designed to meet the demanding needs of everyday life,“ said Todd Lynton, Director – IT, Samsung Electronics Australia. “As a consumer electronics leader, with strong success in the mobile PC category, Samsung aims to achieve significant growth with our new ATIV range.”

Convenience of a Notebook With a Tablet

Combining some of the functions of a notebook PC with the convenience of a tablet PC – the 11.6-inch Samsung ATIV Smart PC and ATIV Smart PC Pro highlight the next stage in consumer computing solutions. With Windows 8 functionality, as well as full Windows 7 compatability, both devices feature a detachable keyboard-docking system that allows users to easily switch between a clamshell notebook to a portable tablet PC.

Intuitive Touch

An advanced 10-finger multi-touch screen provides a different level of interactivity. Its outstanding sensitivity allows users to pinch-to-zoom, rotate images and scroll through pages with ease to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications.

S-Pen, S-Note and S-Camera

In addition to the commonly provided input methods, the ATIV Smart PC and ATIV Smart PC Pro are equipped with the S-Pen, delivering a highly real writing and drawing experience. Almost like using a pen or pencil, the Wacom digitiser pen is capable of meeting demands of professional designers with its 1024 level pressure sensitivity. The pre-loaded S-Note application accompanies the S-Pen to make writing and drawing simple and intuitive. While the S-Camera fully exploits the performance of the integrated front and rear cameras, the S-Player ensures exceptional playback of images and videos

Built for Performance

The ATIV Smart PC Pro’s powerful Intel® Core™ i5 processor can handle particularly demanding professional use and multimedia consumption; while the ATIV Smart PC’s next generation Intel® Atom™ processor is a solid match for everyday productivity tasks.
